Tugay: I'm Worth a New Deal

As Blackburn Rovers close in on a new deal for veteran midfielder Tugay, the maestro insists he is worth this.

The 36-year-old Turkish International is out of contract in the summer and after appearing odds on to extend his stay there was a short period when things looked up in the air. However, with a new deal close Tugay insists he can still cut it in the Premiership. He said:

"I think I can continue for two more years at this level. I am hoping to stay, as the Premiership is where every player wants to be.

"The club has become like a second family to me. I am happy both on and off the pitch. There has never been any reason for me to want to leave here
."

Tugay has been outstanding for the club, the 1.3 million paid for him in the summer of 2001 looked a real bargain at the time and so it has proved.

Let's get this deal sorted (maybe even give him the two-years he wants, but unlikely?!?!) then finish the season strong (with the help of the Maestro) then look forward to a great season next term. We will hopefully be able to use Tugay more sporadically next season, which should see him even more effective.

If injuries don't trouble us next season I can see many players being used as "squad players" as hopefully we'll be able to rotate more.
